FREE potatoes are back!! And $1.50 off Oscar Meyer bacon!

The folks over at Klondike potatoes -- which sells the Green Giant name -- are offering another free potato deal. Only this time, instead of buying two, you only have to buy one 5-pound bag of their Rose or Russet potatoes to get one free!

You do have to provide your email address and register for their site to get the coupon. Go here to do that.

That should make fan Kim P-M happy. Last time around she was intimidated by three bags of potatoes.

Not sure what to do with them?? Here is my family's favorites:

Roasted red potatoes (you can do this with any waxy potato)
4-6 potatoes, washed and cut into bite size chunks
2 T extra virgin olive oil or melted butter
1/2 onion, diced
kosher salt
Seasonings of choice (see below)
Preheat oven to 375. Toss potatoes, onions, oil or butter and seasonings together in a roasting pan. Roast until cooked through and golden, about 45 minutes, stirring every 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with salt when done.
* Seasonings: Be creative, or choose from this list:
1 package french onion soup mix
1 T oregano
1 T crushed rosemary
*Note: I always make extras, and save them until the next morning, when I heat them in a dry frying pan. Remove from pan and keep warm on a plate. Fry an egg to your liking and slide on top.

Or, combine your potatoes with this coupon for $1.50 off Oscar Meyer bacon (available here) and do a potato skin-style red potato
4-6 red skin potatoes, cut into 1/4-inch slices
4 T butter, melted
1 T olive oil
1 cup cheddar cheese
8 slices bacon, cooked
chopped chives
sour cream
Preheat oven to 450 F. Mix together butter and olive oil. Toss potatoes in butter mixture.
Bake potatoes, turning once, until cooked through, about 30 to 40 minutes. Top with cheese and bacon. Return to oven until cheese melts, about 5 minutes. Top with chopped chives and serve with sour cream.
